Goodreads asked Keith F. Goodnight:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Keith F. Goodnight It came about as part of the overall "future history" I've had in my head since I was 14. How did these particular events become part of that history? I really can't say— it feels like I've always known the story of the United Offworld Colonies, the events of "The Child" being part of that. I'm constantly discovering new details, and it always feels like discovering, not inventing: as if I'm finding out something that was always there, even though I didn't know it.
